She smiled darkly



Placed on her shoulder
She carried the clay pitcher
Water for the day

Smiling in the sun
She tilled her small garden plot
For family’s food

Rubbing on the oil 
She’d please her husband tonight
As she smiled darkly

  2. Darkly. That could mean so many things. I love how you (and Jae Rose) do not explain anything. I do. I appreciate the imagination that you make me use.
